Meet the Author

It all started with an old-fashioned typewriter. When the family brought it home, all those stories and characters rolling around in her head could finally get out. The press and click of the keys satisfied in their own right, but when she pulled out a finished page, she knew this was for her. Since then, she's graduated to a laptop, but the stories still find a way out.

She's a breast cancer survivor, a teacher, a wife, a mother, and from the very beginning--a storyteller. Always a hint humorous and honest to a fault, she loves to make people laugh and smile. Her goal in life is to achieve tact and stop procrastinating. The battle wages on.

    Pretty good overall. An interesting take on a zombie-apocalypse world,
    although one aspect of the people's behavior seemed so terribly
    short-sighted as to be almost unbelievable to me. But, that's pretty
    common in short stories so it's a small negative.

    This is a very good short story, with well-judged moments of suspense, and drama, in a very readable package. The only slight is that the story is not long enough, and would be dynamite if it was lengthened. Any which way, well done.

    Interesting story

    Good writing with interesting premise but it felt as if it ended a bit too abruptly. I would have liked to see more character development to elicit a concern for or identification with the characters rather than an ending that simply made me wonder what's coming next. That's not enough to make me read a sequel. It's the difference between curiousity & caring. Caring about the characters makes all the difference.

    Confused

    If you look in "other books by this author" then there is another book called Edge of mercy. It has the same description but the cover and the title is different. It also cost money while this one is free. Is it the sequel or the same book?
